Your school district library may be eligible for a SCKLS School Interlibrary Loan Grant. SCKLS will provide partial reimbursement to a school library for the number of interlibrary loans of 25 or more  provided to libraries outside their district during the previous calendar year.


An eligible school district library must have provided 25 or more interlibrary loans to libraries outside your district during calendar year January 1, 2019 to December 31, 2019. Only interlibrary loans made to libraries outside your school district may be counted. Loans of library materials made to individual libraries within your district may not be counted toward the 25 or more interlibrary loans required for eligibility.

Interlibrary loans provided from individual library sites within a district may not be combined to meet the 25 or more interlibrary loans required for eligibility. More than one grant may be received by a district if the individual library site within the district meets the 25 or more interlibrary loans eligibility requirement.

The total grant amount that an eligible school library receives will be based on a rate of $4.25 for each interlibrary loan of 25 or more provided to libraries outside the district or institution. An application form must be submitted by Friday, January 31, 2020. Required documentation for application includes a copy of your school library’s 2019 Kansas Interlibrary Loan Activity Report. The contact person at the Kansas State Library to assist you in obtaining a copy of the Kansas Interlibrary Loan Activity Report if you do not have one is Rhonda Machlan,

Checks will be distributed by March 2, 2020. 

If you have questions about the grant, please contact Robin Hargrave, Youth and School Services Consultant, 800-234-0529, Ext. 144.
